As marketing vice president for Chrysler Corp., John B. Damoose was one of the auto industry's rising stars. He gave it up to help direct Pat Robertson's media conglomerate, convinced that he should promote Christianity instead of cars. "People at Chrysler thought I'd dropped off the deep end," Damoose said. "Frankly, for a while I thought so, too." Five years later, at 51, he believes the switch was part of a divine plan to prepare him for the marketing campaign of a lifetime.
